What is 254 smo plate ?
The 254 smo is a stainless austenitic grade. A 254 smo plate is designed with a chemical composition of chromium, nickel, molybdenum, nitrogen, carbon, and iron. The superior chemical content in the 254 smo steel plate gives them enhanced resistance to corrosive and oxidative media. The plates are resistant to chloride stress corrosion cracking, pitting, and crevice corrosion. The 6mo plate is characterized by good ductility and high impact strength. These plates have nearly twice the strength as common austenitic grades. The debate to find the best alloys between 254 smo vs super duplex still rages today. The duplex steel may have strength, but the 254 smo grades are cheaper and more efficient.
The versatile alloy 254 smo hot rolled plate has a density of 8 g/cm3 with a melting point between 1320 to 1390 degrees c. These plates have a modulus of elasticity in the tension of 195gpa. Asme sa 240 254 smo stainless steel cold rolled plate has an excellent surface finish and tolerance. The plates have superior strength in comparison to the hot rolled plates. The sa 240 uns s31254 clad plate is common in petroleum production, saltwater handling, and food and chemical processing. These plates are also a feature in desalination equipment, offshore oil and gas production equipment.
The 254smo stainless steel coil is wound after the rolling process and later transported. These coils can be cut in different sizes as per the project needs. The aisi 254 smo coil has outstanding thermal conductivity, capacity, and outstanding electrical resistivity. The robust 6 moly foil is a thin metal grade that protects the material from corrosion and heat treatment procedures. The 254 smo stainless steel equivalent is astm a813, a69, a269, a240, a182, a814, a312, and a249. The plates can be welded following standard procedures. The 254 smo plate suppliers supply these plates in different sizes and shapes as per customer requirements.
